black silica sand, I use sphagnum at the bottom then top with black silica sand, so far so good, pro and con also, vft grow nicer under that from my observation, but then for a small size vft, there is a risk during rainy season, cos rain drop might mess up the sand, might disturb the root, worst ever case, the sand get splash into the growth point of the vft or simply cover bottom part of the plant, which leads to death, for big and matured plant, that won't happen

It is better to wash those silica sand/normal sand before use.

You can get silica sand from fish shop

ya, silica sand need to wash

dormancy wise, I never encounter that for about 1 year plus oredi, just split the plant every 3 months to half a year, get new plant yet can avoid dormancy, even if dormancy strike, you might lose one or two plant instead of lossing all
